An infamous and highly popular piece of kit which helps to keep runners and triathletes supple and injury free is the dreaded foam roller.
This is a simple piece of kit which enables self myofascial release (a form of self massage) which, although often somewhat uncomfortable (like a deep sports massage), is usually highly effective.
However, this is an extremely versatile piece of kit, which is frequently under-used compared to its full potential.
Here’s a foam rolling techniques playlist I created on YouTube demonstrating how the foam roller can be used to great effect all over the body to avoid injury and promote performance.
